Random Vietnam photos
 
Feel free to post any photos you've taken or found (with proper crediting, of course) of Vietnam.

Enjoy!

Recently took a trip to Nha Trang which, as you can see, is about an hour's flight north-east of Ho Chi Minh City.

Most people go there for the beach, so, obviously, that's the subject of the following photos.

Great pics! I haven't been to VT in years. It's a nice spot. Might go back soon.

Dr Awesomesauce Dec 14, 2014 7:56 AM

A couple pics from my recent trip to Phu Quoc Island which, inexplicably, is part of VN. ;) Notice it's just off the coast of Cambodia. How Phu Quoc came to be in Vietnamese hands is somewhat confusing, so I'll just leave it at that.

People go for the beach.

Lots of wonderful natural sites on Phu Quoc but public access to these places is largely restricted. Here's a little river.

I thought Phu Quoc would have more torquoise water than the east coast beaches of Vietnam but in those pics, the waters does not look too clear.

Dr Awesomesauce Dec 15, 2014 12:34 AM

^I don't remember, frankly. It was quite stormy when I was there so that may have affected the water clarity.

I'm trying to think of a beach I've visited in VN that has that gorgeous turquoise water. Not sure...

Cat Tien National Park, Viet Nam
 
Just got back from Cat Tien National Park located just north of Ho Chi Minh City. I'd heard varying reports on the quality of the park for years, so I finally decided to settle the debate myself and have a look - beautiful.

Despite almost total decimation during the war - Agent Orange, primarily - and threats from traditional medicine and the bush meat trade, wildlife endemic to the area has persisted. Yes, the tiger, leopard and rhino are gone, like in so many other parts of the world, but birds, gibbons, monkeys and much more thrive within the park boundaries.

Enough talk - here are a handful of my photos.

Can Tho, Vietnam
 
A few pics from a recent trip to the Mekong Delta. This area, approximately 200 km south-west of Saigon, offers what you might expect: lot of water; lots of fruit trees; a very chilled place. Enjoy.

Chinatown - Ho Chi Minh City
 
Why do we like Chinatown? Or should I say 'Chinatowns.' They're dirty. They're dangerous. They're filled with vice. Huh, I guess I answered my own question.

The following photos are a mere drop in the bucket. Lots of temples. Lots of markets. Lots of colonial shophouse architecture. Unlike its neighbour to the east (Saigon), Chinatown (ie Chợ Lớn - Big Market) appears almost preserved in amber. In disrepair, sure, but charming in its own right. Anywho...

Thanks so, so much for uploading those photo's!

I saw no graffiti on any of those buildings! :shrug:

Whenever I see photo's of different cities, around the world, this is one of my curiosities, graffiti, which cities have it, in abundance, and which don't.

Having just finished reading my first book on Vietnam, it makes me wonder what on earth did they do with all that debris from the War? And filling in all those bomb craters?

bunbo195 Nov 13, 2015 11:04 AM

Hi! I am a Vietnam, I saw those photos you took of me very beautiful country. Thank you for putting these beautiful pictures of my country to the world
